Dont even get me started on the Ottawa Humane Society or the city bylaws.... grrrrr
In short... the city hired an "expert" consultant named James Bandow to write the new bylaws. He basically recommended banning anything but dogs cats and goldfish. When I wrote him to ask what he knew about any of the animals he recommended a ban of he wrote back that he didnt know much about most of them... but he has been consulting on city bylaws for 30 years and that makes him an expert. (If I can find the email I will post it on here for you all to laugh at)
I forwarded that reply to the entire Ottawa city council and offered my services as a water quality engineer... after all I have been drinking water for 25 years so I must be an expert right?
